Fantastic trip. Our tour guide was excellent and really brought alive the story of the D-Day beaches. Although it is quite a long day, we would certainly recommend this trip to other travellers.
We thought the tour very informative and were pleased with the content. We got to see all that we could in the time allotted. Very comprehensive and filled our need.
The tour was brilliant, made more so by the young french lady guide who really knew her D Day history and who made the day extremely interesting, GREAT !
Although we had reserved a tour of Omaha, Sword and the British Airborne, luckily we were the only ones on the scheduled afternoon tour, so we could change the itinerary to include St. Mere Eglise and other WWII sites in the area. I couldn't find a totally American tour on the net, but this change gave us exactly what we wanted.
The tour was fantastic. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and made the whole trip an unforgettable experience for us. My wife learned more about the war in that one day than she had in her whole life! Well done!
"Like drinking from a fire hose" was how one of the other members of the tour described our guide. He was passionate about his job and he did it well.
We booked a full day tour of Normandy. However, since our regular guide just returned at midnight the night before from a private tour of Paris, we ended up having another guide in the morning and she returned us back to our hotel by noon; then we had to meet the regular guide at another location at 1:15pm. We ended up heading out towards Normandy twice in that same day. It certainly would have been better to have stayed out in Normandy once we rode there the first time.
